VHP's Ram Rajya Rath Yatra reaches Tirunelveli amid opposition from some parties

The yatra, organised by the Maharashtra unit of Kerala-based Sree Ramadasa Mission Universal Society was flagged off from Ayodhya on February 13.

Vehement protests are going on across Tamil Nadu as Vishwa Hindu Parishad's rath yatra arrives at Tirunelveli district.

Chennai: The DMK and many outfits on Tuesday came down heavily on the Edappadi K Palaniswamy-led government for allowing Ram Rajya Rath Yatra into Tamil Nadu. Palaniswamy accused the opposition of trying to give political colour to the yatra to gain political mileage.

Expressing fear that the yatra's passage through TN would disrupt communal harmony, Stalin said the government should halt it at the state border and "pack them off to Uttar Pradesh if they insist on entering our state".

It is expected to pass through Tenkasi, Kadayanalloor, Sivagiri, Rajapalayam and Madurai before reaching Rameswaram.

We are shocked to learn this as the law requires that a separate FIR is registered for each complaint", they said in a petition. Johri be immediately removed from all these positions, as the allegations against him bring great disrepute to the university.

But actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan was critical of the manner in which the AIADMK government in the state was handling the yatra.

The situation was being monitored closely, the police said. To this, Stalin said his party was not satisfied with the chief minister's reply. "This is a democratic country and no religion can be discriminated".

As his efforts to rein in the DMK members failed, Speaker P. Dhanapal ordered their expulsion from the House.

As the DMK MLAs did not budge, he moved on to the next item on the agenda and asked Health Minister C Vijayabaskar to introduce the Tamil Nadu Private Clinical Establishments (Regulation) Amendment Bill, which was done amid the din. He also expunged the speech made by Mr. Stalin, who later staged a road roko.
